Spy Myung Wol - Korean Drama 2011

Updated on September 24, 2014

Drama about two crazy elite agents/spies on their secret mission


Based on the readers recommendation, I finally caught up with KBS drama, Myung Wol the Spy or Spy Myung Wol. I never watch any of the lead actor & actress drama prior to Myung Wol, however, after watching this drama trailer and reading the recaps, I thought this romantic-comedy drama looks good. So I gave it a go.

I really enjoy this spy-sizzle-comedy-drama. Watching Spy Myung Wol on Monday & Tuesday night have helped me to distress from a long tiring day. It always brings laughter to my quiet living room. The latter part of Spy Myung Wol episodes turned out to be melodrama, and I guess nobody expected last night's ending. Sigh... Spy Myung Wol was an awesome drama in the beginning, but drifted away and the ending was disappointing.

But thumbs up to the actors and actresses as they had to go through unexpected ordeal when the lead actress abruptly flew to America leaving the whole casts & crew in limbo. I think everyone is relieved that the drama ends, even though the ratings were not as high as they expected. It's a pity that Spy Myung Wol is Eric's first drama after he returned from military service. Thankfully he's currently acting in a much better drama, Discovery of Romance.

Have you watched Spy Myung Wol? Do you like it?

Spy Myung Wol Episode 11 - Preview + Video Preview

While I was looking for the video preview of episode 11, I was astonished to read the news that they haven't finished shooting for Episode 11 & 12. To make things worse, Han Hye Seul (Myung Wol) has not turned up to the shooting site on August 14 onwards..

I don't really know what's going on between her and the show's producers; but any actress / actor (who has signed contract to be part of any drama) should come to the filming site at the assigned times and film their parts, especially when the episodes are due to be aired today and tomorrow! I'm disappointed by her attitude, she let her co-stars and the crews waiting for her since 7.30AM on Sunday, in which they finally filmed their parts without Ye Seul.

Her agency, Sidus HQ released an official statement explaining the reason why she did not turn up. Apparently, they finished shooting at 5am, so she is not feeling well. But as soon as she feels better, she will definitively return to the filming site.

Latest News: Ye Seul still hasn't turned up to the filming site and KBS will take a legal action if she still doesn't turn up to the filming site today. And the latest news finally revealed that Ye Seul is not sick, but she has an issue with the current production director about her working condition.

It's official, Spy Myung Wol's Episode 11 will not be aired on August 15, 2011. It will be replaced with a special episode instead. At the moment, they still haven't decided what they're going to do for tomorrow. It's disappointing as I'm looking forward to tonight's episode, but a special episode is much better than watching a choppy flashback scenes in Episode 11. Myung Wol is the main character, so without her, the episode will definitely be dull.

I hate to say this, but people have witnessed Han Ye Seul at Incheon Airport and she left Korea for LA, USA!

KBS will have an emergency meeting today to decide whether or not they will continue airing this drama. Summary of KBS's Press Conference is now available on dramabeans. From the press conference, it's confirmed that Spy Myung Wol Episode 11 was aired on August 16, 2011..

Han Ye Seul has confirmed she'll be back to the filming site today, I'm so happy that finally she has come to her sense and I believe she'll give her best in portraying Han Myung Wol.

Please continue supporting all casts and crew of Spy Myung Wol!
